An action taken by corrupt Barack Obama when he was President provides additional support for President Trump that he did nothing wrong when he took White House documents with him to his home Mar-a-Lago.
President Trump did nothing wrong. The corrupt FBI and DOJ did so many things wrong and they just keep doing more and more under the Biden regime.
The Mueller sham, Russia collusion, the stolen 2020 Election, COVID…. the crimes of the DOJ and FBI go on an on… but the raid on the home of President Donald J. Trump was a terrible low for even these monsters.
The DOJ and FBI raid on President Trump’s home in an apparent effort to steal documents from President Trump that they didn’t want him to have was theft. The FBI and DOJ’s efforts to then charge the President with having documents illegally was projection and another new low. This is today’s DOJ.
Attorney Mike Davis shared right after the raid that President Trump enjoys the Presidential Records Act that allows Presidents to take documents with them after leaving office. This Act has been argued in court and President Trump has every right to take the documents he wants from the White House and bring with him when he leaves office. This is what President Trump did.
America First Legal now shares the following:
Last week, America First Legal (AFL) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Defense Information Systems Agency, part of the U.S. Department of Defense, to understand the secretive Presidential Information Technology Committee (PITC) created by former President Barack Obama.
Why was this secretive committee created?
In October 2014, Russian hackers breached the Executive Office of the President (EOP)’s network. In response, President Obama created, via executive action, PITC. PITC includes representatives of the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, among others.
First, PITC creates a presumption that the President controls all information he receives. The PITC memo established the President’s exclusive control over information resources and systems provided to the President. (§ 1, ¶ 2.). The memo created the presumption that information contained on information systems and resources was “EOP information.” ( § 4(f)). Because the memo relied upon the Federal Records Act’s definition of “information system” as resources organized for the “use” and “disposition” of “information”, the memo gives the President exclusive control over information he receives. This is relevant to what a President may reasonably believe about information given to him while in office.
Second, and related, if information stored on the PITC network formed the basis for Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution of former President Trump, that evidence should have been disclosed to the former President and may be relevant to his liability.
Special Counsel Jack Smith’s indictment against former President Trump, claims “Trump was not authorized to possess or retain…classified documents.” But Obama’s PITC memo may have created a reasonable belief in President Trump that he, in fact, had such authority. Additionally, if the records Trump allegedly destroyed are still preserved within the EOP or the U.S. Department of Defense as part of PITC-created information systems, then other claims in the indictment may be baseless.
These explosive findings are consistent with America First Legal’s whitepaper contending that the President of the United States has absolute authority over presidential papers. Neither Congress nor the federal courts may lawfully abrogate or limit this authority.
This is all in addition to President Trump having the Presidential Records Act behind him.
